1969 Australian Touring Car Championship

This is a fantastic article on the 1969 ATCC, including some great period photos.

The amazing thing is the VARIETY of cars compared with what we have now. Look at the very first photo for variety......

The 1969 ATCC was the first run as a series, previously they had been one off events.

Highly recommended.

Wonderful article Terry, thanks for sharing

How good is the photo with the Moffat Mustang in front and the FJ in the background! Shows what the racing was all about

I noted that Norm Beechey features prominently here but was not a Bathurst starter. Was that unusual for this time?

At Bathurst Beechey crashed in practice. The car wasn't able to be repaired for the start.
